ART Layout

This layout I designed for Rainbow Splendour for my share this month.  I was inspired by the triangles on the pin.

So, I used impasto paste through a Flutterby Designs stencil and then sprayed co-coordinating colours of Colour Blast Colour Spray over the top.  The trick is to make sure you dry each colour before adding the next.  This limits the amount of colour mixing that happens.  It still mixes just not as much.

For some reason this photo looks a little dull but in real life it is pretty cool.

Lets go Explore

I have some big things happening down the track so I am in the process of getting my layouts sorted and shared rather than having them sit waiting.  Waiting for what I have no idea maybe just time to sit down and blog them.  I am currently waiting for another process video to save, so why not blog and share these layouts especially as this one is a perfect Rainbow Splendour share.  Check out those wood veneer planes.  My favourite of all the RS woods.

This is a heavy mixed media background with lots of texture so I kept the veneer raw to make it pop.

Me & My Girl

This layout was another option to a design team layout I was working on.  I created three different layouts and had a friend choose the one she thought best fit the criteria.

This layout started off differently, turned into an art journal page then I started again and the finished product is exactly what I imagined.

Here is my layout:

Not a Dog + No Joke | Flutterby Designs DT Share.

Two more layouts using the “Fur-ever Friends” collection.  These two layout are actually about real life pets.  The first one is my mum’s dog Pinto, who to this very day, isn’t convinced my daughter is a person.  These photo were taken when she was almost a year old and she is four now.  Still, he always has to make sure both front and back, that she isn’t a dog.  Yet he leaves the other two kids alone.  Weird, Right?

To read about the products and the process head over and check out the Flutterby Designs Blog.

Now on to another dog layout.  This one is our beloved Bulldog, Bomber.  This photo was taken at one of my husbands regular house parties just before we met and I moved in 5 months later.  Bomber was the “Man” of the house.  He had his own couch, routine and an attitude.  I messed with that when I moved in and his attitude took a long time to adjust.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Precious Moments

This is my take on this months Scrap the Girls Challenge. This month is a moodboard called “Seaglass”.

Moodboard 4.jpg

All the sea inspiration meant I just had to use a photo of the sea.  I settled on this series of photos of my daughter Poppy taken last October at Kingscliff.  The colours of the ocean are a perfect match.

Here is my Layout:

This layout is all about texture.  I added colour to start then strips of material, some gyprock tape and then bubble wrap.  Yep I used bubble wrap to add some textural “glass rocks” to the layout.  I was a bit of work to hand stitch them all on but I think it was well worth it.  I really love the way it turned out.

There is a process video up on Popleopod YouTube Channel so head over and check it out.

White with One Challenge – September

This layout I created 2 years ago, it was accepted for published and then all sorts of publishing drama has occured.  I have been advised it may not be printed and I can share it so here it is….

I decided to have another go at this challenge this month.  Last month the Custard Yellow layout I did was pick up for publishing so I was keen to get an entry into this challenge.

The colour this month was Antique Moss. Kahki Green in other words.  All my greens are fairyly bright so I started off mixing my own version of the green that I wanted to use.  My ingredients were – 2 squirts of Kaisercraft Antique Gold, 2 Squirts of Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Fossilised Amber and 4 of Tim Holtz Twisted Citron. This is my colour swatch.  I knew I wanted to write this blog post to I made sure I kept track of what I was adding.


I applied my ink to my pre-prepared cardstock (a layer of gel medium) using a mop brush and plenty of water.  Once it was dry I added some texture paste through a sencil.

I then went through my stash and pulled out everything that was white and green.  I had no idea where I was actually going with this layout but I knew what colours I had to work with.  I found this little felt frame in a box of ‘I don’t know if I will ever use these things’ and I decided that I was going to make it work.  The photo I chose was a black and white photo of my daughter that I had printed out a while ago but hadn’t decided how I wanted to scrap it.  I actually have a few different photos from this day that I want to scrapbook but I love them so much I didn’t want to just scrap them for the sake of it.  Anyways, once I had my frame and my photo I just kept layout out bits and pieces until I was happy then I glued it all down.

Just as I was sitting down one night to write this post I thought I should send this one off to see if I can get it published.  I was gobsmacked when I got the acceptance email.  So now it has been published I can finally share it.


Here are some of the details.
